A year ago, both Council Rock South and La Salle saw their baseball seasons end in devastating fashion. In an error-marred state-quarterfinal playoff, C.R. South yielded three runs in the bottom of the seventh and bowed to Spring-Ford, 6-5. La Salle, after jumping out to an 11-0 lead in the first 11/2 innings of a Catholic League semifinal against Neumann-Goretti, gave up 13 runs in a nightmarish sixth inning and fell, 18-13. The chance to come full circle comes on Friday, when the Golden Hawks and Explorers clash in a PIAA Class AAAA championship game set for 1 p.m. at Penn State's Medlar Field at Lubrano Park.

THE MOST pressing matter on my mind leading up to La Salle's Sweet 16 game on Thursday is how I am going to obtain a ticket. Not to the West Regional semifinal against Wichita State, but to the Flyers-Islanders matchup taking place in Philly on the same night. Let me explain. I'm a bit superstitious, and in my mind the only way for La Salle to win on Thursday, is for me to be in the building I've visited each day the Explorers have won an NCAA Tournament game this year - the Wells Fargo Center.

LOS ANGELES - The good doctor didn't mean to be contrary. Dr. John Giannini was not being obtuse, or ornery, or even particularly prickly the past 2 weeks, when he disputed the "Cinderella" tag affixed to his Explorers. His dispute, of course, was meant to legitimize La Salle in his own players' eyes. He's practically a sports psychologist, for goodness' sake. Don't let him mesmerize you with that soothing tone. La Salle was as Cinderella a story as any team, ever.

NEW YORK - John Giannini has insisted that the margin for error for his La Salle team in the Atlantic 10 is minuscule. In Fordham's overstuffed gym in the Bronx Saturday, he was proven right. The Explorers (18-11, 7-7 A-10) dropped a physical 67-62 decision to Fordham, surrendering 35 points and 16 rebounds to Chris Gaston, the league's leading rebounder, and 26 offensive rebounds to the Rams. The win dropped La Salle behind Dayton, which hosted UMass on Saturday night, in the Atlantic Ten standings.

Who's hot Ole Miss 6-foot-7 senior Murphy Holloway scored 23 points and grabbed nine rebounds in the SEC championship win over Florida and had 10 points and nine rebounds in the 57-46 NCAA win over Wisconsin.

Who's not Guard Nick Williams has shot just 7 for 25 in his last two games for Ole Miss.

After almost four decades coaching boys' soccer, including the last 28 seasons at La Salle, Bob Peffle has announced his retirement. Peffle, 67, took over as Explorers coach in 1987, and while the first few years were rough, he soon built the program into one of the best in the Catholic League and all of Southeastern Pennsylvania. "There is no perfect time or perfect year for this," Peffle said Thursday. "I just hope and pray that [the team members] understand that this is when it fits for myself and my family.

The Explorers improved to 2-0. Price, a redshirt junior transfer from Auburn, led the Explorers with 18 points - 13 in the second half. Center Steve Zack pulled down a team-leading 11 rebounds and added seven points. After Jordan hit the two free throws, Quinnipiac could not get off a final shot.

HAMDEN, Conn. - Guard Jordan Price scored La Salle's last eight points, including the game-winning free throws with 3 seconds left, as the Explorers rallied to defeat Quinnipiac last night, 60-58. With 18 points, Price was La Salle's only double-figure scorer. The Explorers (2-0) trailed by 11 in the first half and by 10 with 13 minutes remaining in the game. They also lost senior forward Jerrell Wright after halftime because of a back injury. "If we ever get clicking offensively, we could really have a good team," said Explorers coach John Giannini.

When Phil Martelli got his job as head basketball coach at St. Joseph's, the men in charge of the city's pro outfits were named Ray Rhodes, Jim Fregosi, John Lucas, and Terry Murray. It's been a while. The Sixers have had 11 coaches during Martelli's two-decade stint on Hawk Hill. (The Flyers a mere nine.) It's not just Martelli. Philadelphia's Division I college basketball coaches are on an unprecedented run in terms of the combined longevity of their jobs. Even the least tenured among them is pretty much at the national average for a stay at a school.

WHEN THE season hits mid-February, nobody will remember much about the first games except who won. La Salle won. Penn lost. Conclusions would be a mistake. La Salle trailed much of the first half at Gola against Colgate, got a working margin in the second and held on to win 57-52. It looked and felt pretty much like a first game. Neither team shot very well, a combined 7-for-34 from the arc. The Explorers got 10 points and 13 rebounds from senior big man Jerrell Wright. La Salle also got 19 combined points from its two point guards - Khalid Lewis, who started, and Amar Stukes, who played in his first game after redshirting.

AT FIRST GLANCE, the scoreboard at the Charles Martin Memorial field screamed the offensive prowess of St. Joseph's Prep. In last night's AAAA Catholic League championship bout, members of the Hawks' offense gallivanted into the end zone early and often en route to a rousing 46-13 victory against La Salle. However, the Prep penny-pinchers on defense dominated all night and helped the Hawks defend last season's crown. "Defense is key for us," Prep quarterback Jack Clements said.

The question has lingered in song since it was first posed in the 1960s: How many roads must a man walk down - before he becomes the subject of a major university archive devoted to helping researchers discern the meaning of his every move and utterance? The answer, my friends, ain't blowin' in the wind. The answer is at La Salle University, which runs what it believes to be the nation's only academic collection focused on songwriter, poet, and troubadour Bob Dylan. Dylan will come to Philadelphia this week to perform three shows at the Academy of Music, his first Center City appearance since 1963.

La Salle crowned a new homecoming king at halftime of the men's basketball game Saturday afternoon at Tom Gola Arena. Senior power forward Jerrell Wright was not nominated. That's OK. After the game, he showed off a more important piece of hardware: the wrestling-style championship belt given to the Explorer who grabs the most rebounds. Wright paired 10 points with 13 rebounds to help La Salle survive a sloppy first half and grind out a 57-52 win over Colgate in the season opener for both teams.

When he lines up at defensive end for St. Joseph's Prep, Jake Strain always keeps in mind the pass-rushing approach of Eagles linebacker Connor Barwin. "He always says, 'If you can't get there before the quarterback gets the pass off, make sure you put your hands up,' " the senior said. Friday night at chilly Northeast, Strain's active hands and interior toughness helped the Hawks surprisingly blast archrival La Salle, 46-13, for their second straight Catholic League Class AAAA championship.

LA SALLE HAS signed Karl Harris, a 6-4 guard from Hazel Crest, Ill., to a national letter of intent. Harris averaged 14 points per game last season for De La Salle High. "Karl is an outstanding player from a well-coached program that faces the best of high school competition," coach John Giannini said. "He also has a big upside as he possess very good length and athleticism. We are confident in his future progress because of his work ethic and maturity which we have been extremely impressed with.
